It's just wording really. 2.18 is STILL the LTR until next month, and
will be "maintained" in that it will be available for install for that
month. But there's no point filing bugs against 2.18, because they'll
never be fixed now. So in that regard it's "unmaintained", and it's
better to file bugs against the future LTR (3.4).
